Christopher Owens – “New York City” (BBC Session)

Former Girls frontman Christopher Owens will release Lysandre, his first-ever solo album, next month, and we’ve already heard opening tracks “Lysandre’s Theme” and “Here We Go.” Earlier today, Owens and his band recorded a two-song session for Lauren Laverne’s show on BBC 6Music, and he took the opportunity to play “New York City,” a jaunty and jumpy album track with a deeply surprising amount of saxophone tootling. Hear a radio rip of the performance at Fake Walls.

Lysandre is out 1/15 on Fat Possum.
